BoniRob is a multi-purpose robotic platform for applications in agriculture. Its four independently steerable drive wheels and the ability to adjust its trackwidth make BoniRob highly maneuverable.
BoniRob can be run purely on batteries or connected to a generator to extend its range and usage time.
BoniRob can be retrofitted and upgraded with exchangeable application modules (tools).
BoniRob can navigate autonomously along plant rows (e.g. dams) in the field, carrying the application module (tool) as it goes.
Environmental sensors (e.g. Lidar), inertial sensors, wheel odometry and (optionally) GPS are mounted for row detection and navigation.
Functions that make BoniRob versatile and easy to use:
To develop suitable functional modules, the applied research requires multi-functional platforms with the following capabilities:
